The trail is easy and beautiful...but the highway noise ruins it for me.

Beautiful. The scenery is just amazing. Short, easy trail.

If you love Redwoods there are a lot of them here. Some are down but all are beautiful.

Definitely recommend- easier trail, decently short, and more private than national parks so you can enjoy being one with nature

Amazing trail. Beauty beyond your imagination. It's like a whole different world. You feel so small among the Giants...

Easy, very pretty. I may go in the wrong season so didn’t get to see the little moss hills from photo but it is still a very refreshing walk

What an amazing little trail. Lush green sorrel carpets the forest and only the trail is bare. Giant redwoods shoot to the sky, and some fallen lay about as part of the ground's landscape. You feel like you've been miniaturized. We skipped the Redwood national forest to come to the Humboldt area instead. The place is basically yours.

Nice quiet hike. Got lost did the loop twice, so our hike ended up being 4 miles.

Easy little meandering trail. Lots of poison oak this time of year.

This is a great place to get out of the car and stretch your legs for a few miles. The redwoods are amazing and the trail is very easy.

Beautiful, super flat trail. Tons of ferns and shadiness. So fun to look up at these giants.

Very beautiful year round. Easy hike. Second time we've been there, once in summer and once in winter.

Great trail. My family walks this trail often. Our 5,3,and 2 year old manage this enjoyable walk through a beautiful clover and redwood forest easily.

Mellow, gorgeous walk through some of the biggest redwoods remaining. Occasionally the nearby parks offer a guided walk through - totally worth it.
